All American presidential elections have global consequences.

The 2020 election – held against the background of a global pandemic, a looming climate catastrophe, and a fundamental weakening of international institutions – however, is particularly striking for its global impact.

What will be the likely consequences of the continuation of an ‘America First’ foreign policy under a re-elected President Trump, or a President Biden’s plans to ‘once more place America at the head of the table’? And where does the ‘Special Relationship’ sit in both visions?

To discuss these issues, the Rothermere American Institute is delighted to welcome the former British Ambassador to the US, Lord Darroch of Kew, former Deputy Homeland Security Advisor to President Barack Obama, Amy Pope, and transatlantic historian Jay Sexton from the University of Missouri.
